“God’s Particle” or “Higgs Boson” has shaken the foundations of the Physics and the theories which had their roots in the theory given by Albert Einstein and other Western Scientists. Thousands of years ago Rishi (sage) Kanadhi had written about Kan-particle- and the ancient Hindu Philosophy that declared that there is presence of God in every particle.
When Albert Einstein and Satyendra Nath Bose, whose name is given to Higgs-Boson, believed that there is some kind of energy in the universe and this energy gives mass to everything, the scientists all over the world were deeply perturbed because they had been habitual to following and teaching the theories which established that there is nothing which can travel faster than light. Now this theory is obsolete, for the experiments at CERN have accepted that there might be certain neutrinos which travel faster than light.
“God is present in every particle” is taught to every child in Indian homes and they have been living with this Vedic concept for thousands of years. The Christian Philosophy is based on “God created this Universe” and the Christian teachers continue to teach that the Universe is a materialistic entity and it was created by God. The central philosophy of Hinduism or the references found in the Vedic texts say “God is this Universe”, in other words “This Universe is a manifestation of God”, or “The Universe is a part of the Supreme Consciousness”.
The Vedic Philosophy has maintained for thousands of years that God’s presence is there in every particle in this universe. It was Satyendra Nath Bose, an eminent scientist from India, who took this Vedic view seriously and continued his research seriously. Though his name is given to “Higgs-Boson” or “God’s Particle”, people hardly know about this great Indian scientist. Now one thing is confirmed that the Western world does not immediately accept the Eastern, especially Indian scientific concepts, but ultimately it accepts that the Vedic philosophy is the foundation of the modern physics and science. The modern physics and scientific technology owes immensely to the Vedic philosophers and mathematicians. Think of the world without “0 zero” or without “.decimal” or the earth is round “Bhugol” (Bhu=earth, and gol=round). Rishi Kanadhi, Aryabhata, and many other scientists and philosophers from the Vedic era, thousands of years ago, had already mentioned the secrets of the universe, which are now being proved through deep research in the western world.
Now it has been proved that God does not exist somewhere outside this Universe, for the scientists through their experiments have proved that it is Higgs-Boson or God’s Particle which gives mass to everything which has weight in this universe. I would like to call it “touch of God” and it can be added that everything that has existence has God’s presence in it. So the Vedic philosophy or the Hindu Philosophy that God does not exist outside the Universe is proved. Generally, term “God” is taken as a personified version of a super human being but it is not. God is all all pervading Supreme Consciousness, the Brahman. The Vedic phrases like “Aham Atma Brahma” or “Aham Brahmasmi” all mean the same, they all point to the presence of God in everything that is there in this Universe.
The scientists all over the world do believe that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only change form. This is an irrefutable scientific fact. The scientists call it energy but the ancient Vedic philosophers called it Supreme Divinity. The divine nature of this Universe is described beautifully in the Ishopanishad, or the Isha Vasya Upanishad.
Om Purnamadah Purnamidam
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Heem
Om, That is Completeness, This is Completeness,
From completeness, completeness comes forth.
Completeness from completeness taken away,
completeness to completeness added,
completeness alone remains.
Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!
“That” and “This” refer to Supreme Divinity and the Universe respectively.
With the discovery of Higgs-Boson or God’s Particle it has been proved that something unknown has come to light and the scientists have accepted that there are certain particles which were unknown to them. They accept that God’s Particle completes everything.
Now it can be said that God’s particle was already there, unknown to us, is there, known to us, and will be there in future. And it can be added that it is the supreme energy which fills the universe, thus refuting the widely accepted concept “God created Universe”. Our universe and this eternal show is just continuity of occurrences and it will continue till eternity. Humans, trees, rivers, land, animals, and everything which has mass has the presence of God’s particle and there is nothing which makes us close to God or the stones distant from God.
The scientists have proved, in other words, that there is no difference, in the context of physical existence, between a human being and the materials which a human uses in his daily life. God is present everywhere was said in the Vedic line “Ishvasyam idam sarvam”.
I have begun to feel very important, thanks to the scientists at CERN, because I am existing and I am also made of particles and if God’s particle had not touched them I wouldn’t have got form and existence!
